Cardmaker Blog Hop

Welcome!! I'm glad you found your way here. You should have arrived here from the awesome Catherine Scanlon's blog. World Card Making Day is right around the corner. In fact, it's tomorrow! I love that there is a day to celebrate the art of card making. There's nothing quite like receiving a handmade card in the mail. I love to feeling of knowing that I'm making someones day by sending them a little bit of happiness when I send a card that I made.

Created by Becki Adams for @bellablvd and @illustratedfaith #WCMD #cardmaking #handmadecard #papercrafting
The Bella Blvd creative team and the Cardmaking Magazine team have a really fun blog hop for you today. I created a card with lots of fun products from Bella Blvd and Illustrated Faith. I created the base of the card with white embossed cardstock. Then I mixed a little bit of white paint and dark pink paint to create a lighter shade of pink. Then, I dry brushed the front of the card.
The main embellishment cluster and the sentiment are in the bottom right corner of the card.
The sentiment for this card is a sticker. I simply added foam adhesive to make it stand out a little bit. I think it's a pretty powerful sentiment, "let your faith be bigger than your fear," I wanted to make sure that the design of the card didn't detract from the sentiment.
Another way I made sure that the design focused on the card was to create a string of dark pink hearts leading right to the sentiment. This card was really easy to make, with drying time, it took me less than 45 minutes.
